4. Symposium - Set of talks providing an in-depth perspective on individual research areas/topics within affective science. Sessions can be comprised of 3 talks with a discussant or 4 talks without a discussant. All symposia must be chaired. Symposia will be part of SAS for the first time in 2022!

No fee to submit an abstract. The fee structure for conference registration will be announced on the website by mid-October 2021. We encourage submissions from authors at all career stages.
